Become a Firefighter

Are you interested in joining the Eden Fire Department? The only requirements are that you are 18 years of age or older and live in the Eden Fire District (or within close proximity).  The Department requires you to attend a NYS Firefighter 1 training course in your first two years of service in the department.

 

NYS Firefighter 1 is a total of 120 hours and combines classroom lectures and hands-on training sessions.  It is hosted at fire companies throughout the county, and can be taken either 2-3 days per week over a few months or in a boot camp setting over the Summer (two weekends and two weeks of Monday-Friday from 8am to 5pm). If there are limitations that prevent an individual from being able to complete the NYS Firefighter 1 training course, other accommodations can be made depending on the circumstances.  The Firefighter 1 training course will teach the recruit the basics of what they will need to know to begin their career in the fire service.  However, the firefighters training does not end with the completion of the course.

The Eden Fire Department requires each of their members to attend a minimum of 6 in house drills as well as respond to 10% of the total fire alarms annually.  We urge our members to go above and beyond the department minimums and take advantage of the many training resources available to them from the State of New York as well as Erie County.  Being a volunteer firefighter has its benefits, although the requirements can be demanding, the level of satisfaction is extremely high and potential rewards are endless to today’s firefighter.  If you are interested in being a volunteer firefighter, you can submit an application or contact the Department for more details.
